    ndiswrapper cannot activate netowrk interface wlan0


    halo...i am using fedora core 4, 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4stk.16 ( after change to 16K stack size) and did installed ndiswrapper-1.23 into my distro.
    I did followed the installation method from this link:
    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...p/Installation

    Everything is work fine, and i also did "ndiswrapper -m" to create aliasing to modprobe.conf and also disable irq
    by typing "acpi=noirq" in terminal.

    I did not have any problem when typing the commands:
    iwconfig,iwlist wlan0 scan,ifconfig.

    But when i try to activate my network card by typing "ifconfig wlan0 up", the error message shown as:
    " No such device".

    DId anyone know why ???

    hi
    are you configured the wlan0 interface , you can do that with iwconfig or editing the network configuration file , or with some graphical frontend.

    But if you have a wifi card with atheros chipset i suggest you the madwifi driver.

    r i explained in details what I did by following the instruction installation of the link from my previous message.

    after i intsalled the ndiswrapper and window driver, and it shown hardware exist and driver installed. Then i type " dmesg" :
    ndiswrapper version 1.23 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)
    ndiswrapper: driver w70n51 (Intel,07/31/2003,1.2.0.5 loaded
    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:02.0[A] -> Link [LNKC] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
    ndiswrapper: using irq 11
    wlan0: vendor: 'Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 7100 LAN Card Driver'
    wlan0: ethernet device 00:0c:f1:31:f6:af using NDIS driver w70n51, 8086:1043.5.conf
    ndiswrapper (set_encr_mode:689): setting encryption mode to 6 failed (C00000BB)
    wlan0: encryption modes supported: WEP; TKIP with WPA
    ndiswrapper (iw_set_bitrate:50: setting bit rate failed (C0010017)
    ndiswrapper (set_packet_filter:752): filter not set: 0x00000000, 0x00000009
    ndiswrapper (ndis_open:770): couldn't set packet filter

    ((maybe i did typed some command such as iwconfig,iwlist,ifconfig and ifup ...then it appears the extra message such as:

    ndiswrapper (set_encr_mode:689): setting encryption mode to 6 failed (C00000BB)
    ndiswrapper (iw_set_bitrate:50: setting bit rate failed (C0010017)
    ndiswrapper (set_packet_filter:752): filter not set: 0x00000000, 0x00000009
    ndiswrapper (ndis_open:770): couldn't set packet filter ))


    Then i checked the wlan0 interface whether got exist :

    [root@localhost kokchin]# iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    sit0 no wireless extensions.

    Warning: Driver for device wlan0 recommend version 18 of Wireless Extension,

    Then i typed "iwlist wlan0 scan" :

    [root@localhost kokchin]# iwlist wlan0 scan

    Then i typed "iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed" , then is ok.
    Then i typed "iwconfig wlan0 essid "WaveLAN Network", then is ok.
    Then i checked the essid whether is the name of "WaveLAN Network", it shown:

    [root@localhost kokchin]# iwconfig wlan0

    Then i typed, "ifconfig wlan0 up", it shown error message " no such device" :

    [root@localhost kokchin]# ifconfig wlan0 up
    SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device


    Then i tried to typed "ifup wlan0" , it shown "failed to set ip address" :

    [root@localhost kokchin]# ifup wlan0

    Then i tried to typed "dhclient wlan0" it shown error message:

    Below are my details of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 files:

    # Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
    # for the documentation of these parameters.
    IPV6INIT=no
    ONBOOT=no
    USERCTL=no
    PEERDNS=yes
    GATEWAY=
    TYPE=Wireless
    DEVICE=wlan0

    BOOTPROTO=dhcp
    NETMASK=
    DHCP_HOSTNAME=
    IPADDR=
    DOMAIN=
    ESSID='WaveLAN Network'
    CHANNEL=1
    MODE=Managed
    RATE=Auto


    I did set the "ONBOOT = yes " , but it still cannot connect to internet.
    I did typed "acpi=noirq" to disable ACPI , as taught in this link:

    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m.../index.php/FAQ

    I did refer to 2 links below:

    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...roubleshooting
    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...roubleshooting

    But still have face the same problem.
